Responsible Recruitment Toolkit
- Association of Labour Providers (ALP)
The Toolkit has been developed by the Association of Labour Providers in partnership with the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and has been written in straightforward language to support brands, retailers, employers and labour providers to implement the standards and necessary systems to eradicate the charging of fees to workers in their operations and supply chains. The Toolkit is available to download for free. The Toolkit provides a framework and pragmatic steps to eradicate fee-charging to worker. The Responsible Recruitment Toolkit supports in-house HR and recruitment teams, recruitment agencies and labour providers to recruit responsibly and achieve the commercial benefits of driving continual improvement in recruitment performance.
This sits alongside the ‘Eliminating Recruitment and Employment Fees Charged to Workers in Supply Chains Toolkit’, also produced by the Association of Labour Providers in partnership with the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The second edition of this comprehensive and practical toolkit was published in December 2018. This offers a framework and pragmatic steps to eradicate fee-charging to the worker.
